Friday The 13th Part 6 Retro Jason 039

NECA‘s line of retro style 8″ figures continues to impress with their newest release. The Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives – Jason Voorhees Retro 8″ Scale Figure is the latest addition to the ranks. In the sixth film in the long running franchise, Jason is inadvertently brought back to life by the bumbling of Tommy Jarvis and his friend Hawes, who pays with his life. Now a completely unstoppable killing machine, Jason returns to the Crystal Lake area and proceeds to tear through everyone in his path. This installment marks a shift in the series and brought us Jason as an undead killer. What a better way to celebrate the 29th anniversary of the film than to post a gallery of an all new Jason Voorhees figure. NECA was kind enough to send a review sample along. We have nearly 60 photos of the figure.

NECA Superman Chris Reeve 036

When Richard Donner and Warner Bros. set out to make Superman in the late 70’s, they needed just the right person to play the iconic character. They found that person in the young, charismatic and talented Christopher Reeve. For someone who grew up in the early 80’s, Christopher Reeve was, and still is, Superman to me. He displayed a cool, confident demeanor and helped to define the look of the character going forward. His legendary portrayal of Clark Kent and Superman is still cherished by fans worldwide. At the time, there was no movie quite like Superman. It would take another 21 years before we received another character’s comic adaptation that rivaled the 1978 Superman film (Batman in 1989).

Fans have been lucky enough to receive some truly fantastic versions of this Superman in the past few years. Joining the excellent collectibles from the likes of Mattel, Sideshow and Hot Toys is NECA‘s new 1/4 scale version. NECA worked closely with the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and Warner Bros. on this release. The result is a truly stunning 18″ scale figure. Today we have a full gallery and review. Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth provided the figure.
